Regal’s new 82,500 sq ft mega-plex is a show stopper of new-deco ornament and state-of-the-art projection equipment. It was designed by TK Architects of Kansas City. There are 18 halls variously seating from 150 to 450. All auditoria are equiped with digital and 35mm projection equipment and Dolby digital sound. Additionally, two of the halls are able to project in 70mm and several halls have Dolby EX.

The facility opened to the public on June 20, 2005.

70mm on multiplex screens I think not.

70mm at a NEW multiplex is unlikely but if it’s their flagship they may have installed some used 70mm projectors that were sitting around in case the home office brass feels like doing something unique.

As far as multiplexes not having 70mm screens don’t be so quick to judge. Many of the Century Theatres around here in Northern California are still equipped to play 70mm, not that they’ll ever have the chance to do so again.

There is only one way to view a 70mm movie and that is one a single screen theatre about the time 2001 came out.by the 70’s in was mini-cinemas everywhere.

Yes yes yes, I know, very odd to hear about having 70mm in a new multiplex, but that was what was in the paper. Can’t say if they’ve ever used it or not, but with the thousands of screens that Regal owns, you don’t think they could have moved a couple of old 35/70mm machines from a different location, especially since this is their biggest venue in their hometown? Does Regal call the Pinnacle their flagship theatre? They didn’t initially, that was the West Town Mall theatre (not to be confused with their Downtown West theatre which is their Knoxville art house). At this point in time, I suspect anything they wanted to show which had originally been released on 70mm would now be transfered to digital. Now let’s all take a deep breath snd be grown-ups and refrain from saying how much we hate digital projection.

Big places like this aren’t going to go away. People need to start finding the beauty in what theatres have become.

Though I agree — most theatre patrons nowadays are idiots. Though napalm is extreme.

Many large premieres have been held at this theater. I’m not sure why Regal chooses Knoxville for these events, but I suppose it’s because the company is based out of Knoxville. I recall the first one being The Dukes of Hazzard, which is understandable as Johnny Knoxville is a native of south Knoxville, but they’ve also held charity premieres for Talladega Nights, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Real Steel, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, with the likes of Johnny Knoxville, Sean William Scott, Jessica Simpson, Will Ferrell, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Hugh Jackman, and Liam Hemsworth in attendance, respectively.
